§ From John Baptiste Sartori

25 December 1801, Philadelphia. Refers to his letter informing JM of his arrival in the U.S. and of his deputation of his father to transact consular business in his absence.1 Finds that his stay will be longer than he had contemplated because of court delays in pending lawsuits “for the recovery of considerable property.” Requests permission to prolong his absence from Rome and authorization in an official letter for his father, Charles Sartori of Rome, to act as interim vice-consul.
